Grandpa gave me 3-9N tractors before he got sick hoping to keep them in the family. He also stated back then to grab the hood, sides, and rear fenders for # 1314 that the car dealer replaced with heavy metal in the spring of 1940 since they made so many rattles out in the field. I did. At the auction after his passing I got another complete set for the second one he bought in early December of 1940 that was still on the car lot. Crazy place for a tractor, but he said car dealers sold them back then. They are all very light weight. One has more coats of paint on them than Carters have liver pills. One set is now clean to bare metal and only had a white type powder on it. Does anyone know what color to re-paint the cleaned up set? This tractor is used every week and runs like new. thanks Mike
